The BIG-IP system is a set of application delivery products that work together to ensure high availability, improved performance, application security, and access control.

One of the primary functions of the BIG-IP system is to direct different types of protocol and application traffic to an appropriate destination server. The system accomplishes this through its Local Traffic Managermodule, which can forward traffic directly to a load balancing server pool, or send traffic to a next-hop router, a pool of routers, or directly to a selected node on the network.

Other modules available on the BIG-IP system provide critical functions such as applying security policies to network traffic, accelerating HTTP connections, and optimizing connections across a wide-area network.
